A Dumbarton school’s pupils left more than their homework worries behind on the last week of school as they stepped out in bare feet to aid a charity.

Knoxland Primary School put their best foot forward on Wednesday, June 26 in a bid to aid charity Sal’s Shoes, which helps to provide barefoot children across the world with footwear.

The mass collection saw the kids leaving their old school shoes on their desks and heading off home with nothing on their feet.

Some of the shoes donated by the children will travel up to 10,000 miles to find their home.

And the charity hopes to send photographs to the school of where the shoes were distributed, so the pupils can see all the children that they have helped.

According to Sal’s Shoes, there are 300 million children in the world for whom walking with shoes is a rarity and without shoes, many children are not permitted to attend school.

Since it was created four years ago, the charity has found new feet for over half a million pairs of pre-loved children's shoes in 35 countries around the world.

Now, the pupils at Knoxland Primary's shoes will add to that number and help several barefoot children avoid infection or injury as well as giving them a chance to go to school.
